|Trans Alp - Speicher [phoke23] - Trans Alp|
The three tracks by Trans Alp are all characterized by a sinister atmosphere. However, alternating song structures and a wide palette of genres and elements make each of the tracks a very different experience. While "Geister" is marked by rather pensive melancholy, sugared by the guitar and the gentle melody, "Blub" lives from a dark. decisiveness, underlined and put into effect by a spheric bass and elektro reminiscences...

|Yuppster - Ambition EP [mtk159] - Yuppster|
After his previous bleepish releases on the wondrous 8BitPeoples, as well as remixes on real-life labels like Zod and Carpark, we're delighted to welcome Matt Kuebrich, aka Yuppster, onto Monotonik with the 7-track 'Ambition EP'. Things start with the eloquent 'Alaska', all plink and plonk and deft melodics, before 'Retry Me' radiates an almost mellow Aphex vibe, with shuffling drums and a keen sense of wonder...

|Lackluster - Zero Million Barrels Of Oil Per Day [mtk153] - Lackluster|
When Finnish-born, currently Irish-based idm veteran Lackluster, aka Esa Ruoho, insistently pinged us over IM to release this stunning single track, 'Zero Million Barrels Of Oil Per Day', he was keen that it go live before the global oil market reached its peak. We're not sure we actually managed that, but heck, we figure this almost 10-minute track will convey its mood perfectly well, separately of the amount of crude bubbling out of the ground at any particular speed...

|Sleepy Town Manufacture - For You & For Me [mtk126]|
In the form of a Valentine's Day gift to all from Russian idm maestro Sleepy Town Manufacture, which Monotonik has sneakily re-packaged and re-gifted to the entire world, we're proud to present 'For You & For Me', an entire double album picking some of the best from STM's unreleased output from 1999 to 2002, with a number of tracks specially updated and remastered for this compilation. Sleepy Town, formerly a duo/trio, and now down to a single member, are particularly known for their association...
